Trent Reznor shares preview of Gone Girl soundtrack listen
Sep 19, 2014 11:36pm | Cosequence Of Sound

With less than a month to go before David Fincher’s latest film, Gone Girl, hits theaters nationwide, Trent Reznor has unveiled a preview of the film’s corresponding soundtrack. Listen to it now at Nine Inch Nails’ website.

Gone Girl marks the third collaboration between Reznor and Fincher, who previously teamed on 2010’s The Social Network and 2011’s The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. The former earned Reznor and collaborator Atticus Ross an Oscar for Best Original Score, while the latter was nominated for Best Original Score at the Golden Globes.

Fincher’s latest film, an adaptation of Gillian Flynn’s 2012 thriller, stars Ben Affleck as the primary suspect in the murder investigation of his wife (played by Rosamund Pike). For the soundtrack, Reznor said Fincher asked him to “think about the really terrible music you hear in massage parlors. The way that it artificially tries to make you feel like everything’s OK. And then imagine that sound starting to curdle and unravel.”

Gone Girl is set to hit theaters on October 3rd. Presumably, the soundtrack will be released around the same time. Below, watch the film’s trailer.

Stream Cloud Castle Lake Dandelion EP
Sep 19, 2014 4:34pm | StereoGum

We were big fans of the first two singles from Cloud Castle Lake’s Dandelion EP. In their own distinct ways, “Sync” and “A Wolf Howling” found the Dublin trio conjuring up art-rock euphoria similar to that of Radiohead and Sigur Rós. Those songs and two more — the jazzy dirge “Mothcloud” and the hushed, shivery title track — comprise the full EP, which is streaming below for your enjoyment.

Read a 5th grade girls letter about discovering the Dead Kennedys
Sep 19, 2014 4:30pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Photos via Pinterest

The latest piece of treasure dug up on the Internet comes in the form of a letter written by a fifth grader named Taylor-Ruth. As the young girl details in blue marker, she “checked out a bunch of music CDs from the library.” She added, “a couple had cuss words in the title so I had to promise Ms. Jervis I am 15. I am not yet but I think that lying does not count at the library.” Truer words were never spoken.

It turns out Taylor-Ruth didn’t just stumble upon any old assortment of albums: They were punk records. What follows, in her own squiggly and endearing handwriting, is a tale of self-discover, self-awareness, and, most importantly, a love for the Dead Kennedys.

On a side note: Nothing is more punk rock than hearts above the “i”s and a cute butterfly.

According to Vanyaland, Taylor-Ruth is now 20 years old. She posted the letter on her Tumblr page last year, but it recently picked up traction across the Internet thanks to — who else — Reddit.

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week
Sep 19, 2014 4:27pm | StereoGum

Before I get into this week’s picks, allow me to point out that Jennifer Lopez and Iggy Azalea made a video for a song called “Booty.” Hype Williams directed it. It is exactly what you expect it to be. It came out a few years ago, and it has five million views already. At this point, anyone who includes anything other than straight ass-jiggling in their music videos deserves some kind of hero’s treatment, as do the people who manage to do something interesting with ass-jiggling. “Booty” is not among this week’s picks. Check out the videos that made the cut below.

Colbert Explains Obamas ISIS Strategy In Terms Grunge Fans Can Understand
Sep 19, 2014 4:24pm | StereoGum

ISIS! Very scary, and somewhat confusing from a foreign policy perspective, right? Your buddy Stephen Colbert’s got you covered. In a segment on Tuesday night’s Colbert Report, the future Late Show host broke down President Obama’s rationale for attacking ISIS without congressional approval by way of a timely analogy in a year when Nirvana and Foo Fighters have been constantly in the headlines. The joke in question comes up about 1:45 into the nine-minute video below, and you can find it in GIF form under that thanks to Tumblr Bee Is Happy.

SBTRKT The Light (Feat. Denai Moore)
Sep 19, 2014 4:23pm | StereoGum

As is usually the case with SBTRKT’s Aaron Jerome, less is more. Today, Jerome releases a new single from his upcoming Wonder Where We Land. “The Light” follows singles featuring guests like Ezra Koenig and A$Ap Ferg & Warpaint. This one is graced by Denai Moore’s soft, soulful vocals, which seamlessly blend with Jerome’s minimalistic electronic style. The song is driven by a beautifully understated, erratic beat and bolstered by the ease of Moore’s voice and the occasional piano chord. Listen to the track below, and then check out SBTRKT’s North American tour dates.
